What would be the appropriate way to ask HR through the agency you work with to provide you with written proof you are covered under their Insurance plan? I have my own malpractice insurance but I just want to make sure it is the appropriate coverage. Right now my personal coverage is "workplace insurance" meaning my employer would be primary. Please advise.

It is definitely possible to work during nursing school but it depends on many factors. With the nursing program I was in, it was 40 hours per week with just class and clinical. Then there was homework assignments every night. I was able to work part time but it was extremely difficult.

I don't have sickle cell disease but I did want to say I have chronic pain. I can have significant pain but still be calm, talkative, watch TV, etc. I suggest earning CEUs in pain management. I believe this might help your practice greatly.
I've been a nurse for 8years. I've done critical care, med surg, hospice and home health. I now do case management which can be enjoyable. I suppose I am just asking for guidance bc I know deep down I'm burned out. It's hard to deal with the family members who have impossible demands no matter how hard you try to help. I care about the patients I help and doing a good job. I know you guys understand being burned out. Someone who has been there please advise.

This is dangerous on so many levels. I would be looking for a different job or ask the agency to put you with a low acuity patient. It's frustrating to hear when agencies or hospitals put new grads in these situations to save money.

I remember when I only had just a few years of nursing experience it was difficult for me to get any calls back. Even after interviews. I just kept trying and eventually was able to get a different job. I learned so much from those interviews and interactions with different agencies or hospitals.
Just keep trying OP.
